These were a pair of nice figures of some magically animated pumpkins. While I suspect that they are intended to be evil, I could see a local hedge mage animating them to fight off a band of marauding bandits.

I popped the figures out of the packages when they arrived. They were both one-piece, so there was no assembly required. The only place where I found any noticeable mold lines was on their heads, and I dealt carefully with those using a craft knife and a small file. I then washed the figures in a mild solution of warm water and dishwashing liquid, and allowed them to dry overnight.

The next morning, I began work by brushing on Liquitex Tan Gesso. These were the first figures I've ever primed using gesso, and I felt that they turned out well. The gesso snuggled down nicely into the numerous nooks and crannies. I've been using it for primer ever since!
